Driving Directions & Visiting the University Libraries

UNCG is located just west of downtown and is bordered by W Market St on the north, S Aycock St on the west, S Tate St on the east, and Oakland Ave on the south. Spring Garden St bisects the campus on its southern side and connects to College Ave, a pedestrian thoroughfare that runs through the heart of campus. Easy access to the campus is available from Interstates 85, 40, and 73 and federal routes 29, 70, 220, and 421.

The University is served by several Greensboro Transit Authority bus routes. We encourage you to take advantage of public transportation in order to reduce your impact on the environment as well as your frustration with traffic and parking.
